Draft note
by John Paulsen
Olsen has struggled with injuries in recent years, but in his last 16 games (including one playoff game), he has caught 50 passes for 571 yards and six touchdowns. That statline would have been good enough for a No. 8 finish last year in half-PPR formats.

CAR TE Greg Olsen - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Greg Olsen only caught four passes for 36 yards last week against the Rams, but he was targeted nine times and clearly has the trust of Cam Newton after years of being a security blanket. That’s a good sign for fantasy owners who grabbed Olsen late to be the primary tight end. He was nicked up in Week 1, but early reports say he should be good for his matchup against the Buccaneers.

Tampa held George Kittle to 54 yards last week, but he did catch eight passes. Expect the Panthers to continue to feature Olsen on short-to-intermediate routes, giving him a high floor in what should be a good matchup. Keep an eye on the injury report, but as long as he’s active, he’s a borderline starter in all league formats, and an excellent streaming option in shallow leagues.
